It can even be a great project to do at a bridal shower. Start by collecting the material for your bows. You can get lace or decorative mesh or printed cloth.
Next, you will cut your material to the proper size.
After this, you will then take some Bowdabra wire and place it underneath the Bowdabra itself. This will be used to tie the bow together at the end.
Now you make your first large bow per the instructions in the Bowdabra. But you can also see how easy it is to do by watching the video below.
After you make the first large bow you then take your second ribbon or tulle and start billing the bow out of it. This second bow will be smaller than the first bow. The goal is to add visual interest to the bow by adding dimension.

Once all the pieces are in place you then tie them together with the wire.
After you have completed your bows they will be ready to display at your wedding venue. Talk to your wedding venue coordinator to make sure they don’t have any problems with your decorations.
